overseas -- the cia also has the responsibility for targeting individuals overseas. some say to let the department of defense run any military operations when using drones for strikes. host: "the new york times" says with 2500 people killed by the cia and military since mr. obama took office, the administration is still pushing to make the rules formal and resolve a disagreement about when legal action is justified. mr. obama and his advisers are still debating whether remote- controlled killing should be a measure of last resort. who comes down on what side of the issue? who do we see arguing one way or the other? guest: both sides have a stake in this. politicians love this weapon system. it is easy to use politically. we do not see the bad results often right away. we see the good results. we see a terrorist attack or information -- information attacked. the concern is the low back. if we're attacking civilians in pakistan, it is creating a generation of people who hate the united states going forward. fundamentally, we are so far ahead with this technology in the world that this

of this criticism, the president is sending her, along with the acting director of the cia, to capitol hill today to meet with mccain and two other senators who have been critical of her comments in the early days after that attack when she said it appeared to be the result of spontaneous protests and not, as we later discovered, an act of terror. she has said, susan rice has said she was working from talking points provided by the intelligence community. that's one of the reasons you'll see the acting cia director along with her today. will that satisfy mccain and these other critics? lindsey graham and senator kelly ayotte. she has said not only does she want sufficient explanation, she wants to see documentation as well. she's working from memos and talking points from the intelligence community, let's see them. we'll see what happens after this meeting today. laura. >> we will. thank you very much. >>> it is 5:42. republicans on capitol hill may be willing to back off an old pledge not to raise taxes to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. some prominent republican senators, who were dead set ag

munter is very familiar with the debate that went on between the state department and the cia. if you look at the drone strikes over the past four years, in 2010 there were 122 drone strikes. the numbers have been dropping since then has the highest number of drone strikes we have engaged in. as everybody in this audience i'm sure knows president obama has launched six times more drone strikes than george w. bush in his two terms in office. the numbers have dropped 40%, 25% from 2012. i think this is a very good thing. mainly because we have -- kayani, general kayani said if you keep going after the top 20 why have you done 300 drone strikes? it does not add up. i think that is a good point and if you look at the victims of the strikes, there is a debate about how many are civilians and we at the america foundation think the civilian casualty rate is very low in the single digits but certainly there is a civilian casualty problem. in pakistan we enjoy a 9% favorability rating down from 20% and the drones are part of that story. if the cost of the successful drum program is 80 million

's explosion. still, we don't know what caused it. >>> now the latest in the former cia director david petraeus' sex scandal. cameras were waiting as the mistress, paula broadwell, returned to her north carolina home yesterday. her husband scott told reporters he had no comment. meanwhile after the testimony from david petraeus before congress, a big battle is brewing over u.n. ambassador susan rice's declassified talking points on the attack in benghazi. specifically why the role of terrorism wasn't reflected in these talking points. democratic senator dianne feinstein, chairman of the senate intelligence committee, says she will investigate why the terrorist role was not included, but she says she's sure the white house did not change the language in those talking points. >> with the allegation that the white house changed those talking points, that is false. there's only one thing that was changed. and i checked into this. i believe it to be absolute fact. and that was the word consulate was changed to mission. that's the only change that anyone in the white house made. and i have checked th
." in a report requested by the c.i.a., the national research council wrote this year that -- quote -- "while climate change alone does not cause conflict, it may act as an accelerant of instability or conflict." and back to 2006, the center for naval analysis, a federally funded research and development center that's advised the navy and marine corps since 1942, convened a military advisory board of retired three star and four-star admirals and asked them to support on the threat of security on climate change. the report state that had quo question while uncertainty exists regarding the future extent of predicted climate change, the trends are clear. the nature and pace of climate change is being observed today pose grave implications for our national security. and of course, as the presiding officer knows, in the five years since, the evidence has tracked the worst of those climate change projections, not the most gentle. our nation's top military strategists, nation's top researchers, national research council and national academy of sciences all have recommended that our national security
-awaqi was killed by the c.i.a. in a drone strike in yemen. yet, if it's being interpreted, as we have heard by some of my colleagues represented here, the feinstein amendment were interpreted the way they have interpreted it, if al-awaqi made it to america to commit these terrorist acts, he gets his miranda rights, he gets all his rights here, but yet if he is in yemen committing acts to try to kill americans and our allies, then we can use a drone attack to him, but if he makes it to america -- which, by the way, the terrorists want to make it to america. 9/11 is exhibit a of that. why we would want to be in a position to read them their miranda rights, tell them you have the right to remain silent, our priority there has to be protecting american lives. that's the distinction between the law of war and a law with a common criminal in this country. and by the way, there are protections under the law. it's the right of habeas corpus where you do have a right to challenge your detention before the federal court with appeals with counsel, and that is certainly a protection that we have respected in t

is also happening in the intelligence field at the cia, were quite literally -- >> i don't want to go too far there. [laughter] i want to talk to you a little bit about the role of cable television, which you touched on before. in a recent interview with bill o'reilly of fox, he derided ideological coverage of the news bad for america, making it difficult if not impossible for congress to reach across the aisle and find compromise. you also wrote in an op-ed piece, this is not good for the republic. what do you mean? >> what i mean, and this goes back really a continuation of the same theme. first of all, in addition to demonstrating the network news divisions could make money, there was a technological explosion. it wasn't just the three networks anywhere. they would cable, satellite television, the internet. now they're quite literally hundred's, even thousands of competitors out there. what is incredibly cheap to put on the air is a couple of people like you and me just yelling at each other, talking. what draws an audience is when in fact we disagree, when in fact we get nasty with on
